Social Distortion

"Ness is one of the most underrated pure songwriters in rock." – Los Angeles Times Here's how you know you've made it in the music business: You've stayed strong for three decades on your own terms, on your own time, by your own rules, and over that time your influence has only grown. Each of your albums has been stronger than your last. You've been brought onstage by Bruce Springsteen, because he wanted to play one of your songs. You've seen high times and low ones, good days and tragic days, but every night you give 100%, and every morning you wake up still swinging.

This is the short version of the Social Distortion bio — the long version could be a 10-part mini-series. But over the past 30 years, the punk godfathers in the band have all but trademarked their sound, a brand of hard rockabilly/punk that's cut with the melodic, road-tested lyrics of frontman Mike Ness. Their searing guitars and a locomotive rhythm section sound as alive today as they did in '82, as do Ness' hard-luck tales of love, loss and lessons learned. "The most common thing I hear is, 'Man, your music got me through some hard times,'" Ness says. "And I just say, 'Me too.'"

Ticket information

It's not possible to buy tickets to a specific concert, instead you buy an entrance ticket to the park itself, or our season card Gröna Kortet that you can use every day during the summer to gain access to the park. Tickets bought beforehand does not guarantee you entrance to the park - we recommend being here on time before the concert.

Online tickets are only sold through Gröna Lunds own website. In Stockholm it's also possible to buy Gröna Kortet at Pressbyrån and 7-Eleven.

Gröna Kortet costs 310 kr and allows you to gain access to the park every day during the summer season. On days with concerts admittance costs 130 kr before 6 PM. After that the price is 310 kr and Gröna Kortet is included.
